Hi Ellie,

Hi Ellie,

You were awesome!!! How do you do it? First, an hour and a half of Joan on the red carpet greeting everyone, then hosting the celebrity tribute show, plus a fifteen minute stand up routine. You are fabulous!!! And all those gorgeous costume changes between each act! It blew me away. We want you again next year! I'll forward the date as soon as it becomes available. Everyone loved you! Kudos!

Ellie,
Just a quick note to say thank you again for your outstanding/hilarious performance at our employee holiday party. It was the VERY FIRST TIME many of our employees had experienced a live performance with a celebrity of your stature (meaning you Ellie - and you ARE a true celebrity in your own right).
The facility is buzzing with excitement and you are the "talk" of the workplace.
I do work with other more upscale organizations in the Chicago area and will be pushing for them to utilize your extraordinary talent.
Again in was a genuine pleasure meeting you.

Happy holidays,
Steven

You are wonderful! your scripting and celebrity characterization for our recent corporate event was impeccable as usual. You took an idea and  expanded the concept and then performed it with "flying colors". It is  always a pleasure to have you on our entertainment team, no matter what the character you are portraying. You are a true professional. Looking forward to working with you on many more projects.

Ben Meyer c/o Advance Event Group, Inc
We enjoyed your portrayal of Lucy enormously and learned so much about her life. It was exactly what I was hoping for.

I plunked myself on the couch when I got home and didn't move until I went to bed. It is such a relief when a program goes as planned and everyone enjoys it, that I find myself totally relaxed afterward. I hope you did the same.

We received many compliments afterward.

Wishing you all the best.

re: Oscar Night It was wonderful to have you at the Drake event. I really think you kicked the party up a notch! The Drake is planning on having the Oscar Party next year.

Thanks again! And you looked fabulous darling!
